The team was owned by Bryan Hill and the racing driver Austin Hill. The last event they ran was in 2016 where Hill drove the No. 02 Ford F-150 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series[edit]

Truck No. 20 history[edit]

This was the first truck ran by the team. It was raced in the 2016 Great Clips 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway where he finished twelfth. He then tried to race at the Charlotte race but did not qualify. He then qualified for the Texas race, finishing fifteenth. After qualifying for the Martinsville race, he finished tenth. At the second Texas race, he finished nineteenth. He then finished the 2016 season at Homestead, finishing seventeenth, finishing 26th in points along with the No. 1.

Truck No. 1 history[edit]

The No. 1 truck only ran one race at the Dover race, originally the team entered the No. 20 but since there were more trucks than spots in the line-up, the team made a one-race deal with Jennifer Jo Cobb Racing trying to make the field. It worked, the team made the race and finished 17th.

Truck No. 02 history[edit]

This truck was the third truck ran by the team. After struggled to make the field with few owners points, the team made a partnership with Young's Motorsports but competed under the Austin Hill Racing banner, using Young's owners points. The first run was at Kentucky in 2016, Hill finished 18th. He then crashed out at Pocono, finishing 31st. Then at Bristol, he finished 19th. During his last race as the No. 02 in 2016, at New Hampshire, he crashed, finishing 30th. He drove many races in the 2017 season, with ARCO Design/Builds as a full-time sponsor. He finished the season with a highest finish of tenth at Kentucky and a lowest of 27th at Dover. Hill finished 23rd in points at the end of the 2017 season.

Merging With Young’s Motorsports[edit]

After the 2016 season, Austin Hill Racing, using his equipment, made a partnership with Young's Motorsports to drive the No. 02 (which had enough owners points to lock the team in the races). Austin Hill competed 12 races driving his Fords trucks while Tyler Young and several others drove Chevrolets' trucks. In 2018, Austin Hill competed full-time for Young's Motorsports, he drove the No. 02 Chevrolet in all races. The former AHR's No. 20 owners points was incorporated by Young's Motorsports and became the 2nd truck of the team. Young's Motorsports currently fields three Chevrolet Silverados in the Truck Series, Tate Fogleman in their No. 02, T. J. Bell in their No. 12 part-time, and Spencer Boyd in their No. 20 and previously had Charles Lewandoski in a No. 42 for six races in 2014.
